As published in the Los Angeles Times, KTLA, News One and others, Partner Matthew McNicholas filed a discrimination lawsuit against the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Fired Department (LAFD) on behalf of Emanuel Brown, an African American firefighter/paramedic with the LAFD for the past decade, who was forced to transfer out of a coveted position after enduring various acts of discrimination, harassment and retaliation, including feces being put in his locker and threats being made to his personal safety.

In his interview with the Los Angeles Times,  McNicholas noted that Brown’s experiences show that there are some strands of “deep-seated racial animus (that) have yet to be rooted out of the department.”
